Orthopedic Center Goes Digital with Konica Minolta’s DR, CR Solution

March 3, 2009 – Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Center (Trumbull, CT) selected the upright REGIUS 370 Digital Radiography and Nano CR solutions by Konica Minolta Medical Imaging USA to convert from analog to digital imaging.

The REGIUS 370 DR is installed at the main office, with two Nano CRs in separate procedure rooms; three satellite offices each have a Nano CR. The purchase was made in conjunction with a PACS from GE Healthcare.

“The REGIUS 370 DR fulfills our needs for a high throughput, upright digital radiography unit that is also cost-effective,” says Kelly Poulin, Practice Administrator. “We are very pleased with the smooth transition from analog to digital and look forward to realizing greater workflow efficiencies that result from a digital environment.”

Selecting the REGIUS 370 DR allowed the center to retrofit an existing X-ray table and generator to save expense, and gain the high throughput capabilities of an upright DR.
Plus, the use of a single Control Station for the REGIUS 370 DR and Nano CR optimizes image quality for all applications and reduces the number of steps to improve productivity and streamline end-user training.

According to Darren Werner, Digital Radiography Product Manager. “Considering the high saturation of CR and DR in hospitals, our ability to combine CR and DR solutions onto one unified platform allows us to provide solutions that are cost-effective, reliable and easy to use for the various alternate care markets.”
